policies of the obama administration, not just the secretive drone strike but using the right to use it against american citizens. this came up in 2007 when a drone strike killed awlaki and kahne, both u.s. citizens and neither charged with a crime. and we have extra judicial killings by the u.s. government without any judicial review and any right of the citizen to argue his or her case in court. these are very sticky issues. the legal basis for these strikes has been kept a secret by the obama administration. you may remember we had huge fights back in the bush era about the legal memos for enhanced interrogation tactics, the so-called torture memos. ultimately they became public. this is viewed by some as an analogy for that, secret memos upon which huge u.s. government policies, with grave consequences are being made. we got a copy of this memo, which is not the olc memo, the office of legal council memo but a white paper, 16 page white paper that mirrors and tracks it and gives us much more detail about what the legal basis for these strikes are. >> you draw a great analogy with
threat. the obama administration has focused almost entirely on al qaeda. believing people when they came in and said, look, the only people who can actually give you advice on dealing with these radical folks are islamic believers, he so you must get advice from us. form partnerships with us, let us give you advice, let us tell you how to deal with this threat. and they made great inroads in this administration in that approach. but the blindness of the larger jihadist threat, the enterprise that is being pursued by the muslim brotherhood abroad, has resulted in the practice of drone delivered assassinations of al qaeda figures with what many are questioning or arguing is due process without that. and this administration's repeated declaration that al qaeda is being defeated. they know not of what they speak. the idea that al qaeda is being defeated is helping recruit others who are radical jihadists, because they are able to point to a united states administration that is so blind and so uninformed of what really is going on that they think al qaeda's on the decline when radical jihad i

way to adjudicate the possibilities of what war means to the obama administration? >> well, i think that, i think that is absolutely right, it has been a continuation of the bush administration policies, and yes, administrations always try to push the outer bounds of the authority. but one thank is clear is that the laws of war have not changed even if the practice has changed. there are really three reasons that a country can, a state can use force outside of its borders. one, if it is the victim of an armed attack and second if the u.n. security council authorizes it, and three, assisting a state that requests it, and we have stretched that boundary as well far beyond what the laws of war call for. so i think that there is a very serious question about this question of perpetual war, but we should remember historically in the 20th century, the u.s. was at war virtually every decade of the 20th century, so if we think of ourselves as peaceful country that does not engage in war, we need to rethink that. >> that is right. david, i want to ask this question, because where we were bef
down as a precondition, is not known. >> that he set out what the obama administration second term foreign-policy would be? xp did not go that far. he had three main parts aside from syria, issuing an offer and a warning to iran, and a warning if the us policy is not containment, but to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon and his offer is they are ready to have talks but the supreme leader needs to be serious about negotiations. that was one thing. another theme was a reset with russia and he made it clear there were differences with russian leadership. it clearly sounds like they will work together on and ad hoc transitional basis. with europe, they said the good news and the bad news is we are not going anywhere, reaffirming the commitment to europe. >> that is a reassuring message. melinda, thank you very much. john kerry has been sworn in as us secretary of state, replacing hillary clinton to my taking his at a small ceremony in washington, dc. he has been in public life for three decades and is the 68 secretary of state, and among his priorities would be removing troops

could be achieved in the new obama administration, the second term you about it is ultimately the supreme leader who calls the shots. certainly the fact that iran told the u.n. nuclear watchdog last week it was going to be deploying a significant number of second generation centrifuges that can spin uranium three times as fast as ones currently used is not a sign of stepping back, jenna. it is certainly a sign of moving quickly along. there are some experts who think that actually more rigorous, intensive, sustained negotiations at this point will be more useful than sanctions. then there are different opinions at this point about this point of no return. some say it his iran has enough fissile materiel it could make a nuclear warhead. and that would be this summer by many estimates. others are saying that red line point is when iran can do that but do it in a way that is undetected by world powers so they won't really have an opportunity to respond in time. and some experts are frankly saying iran is already at this point is a nuclear power because it frankly does have the kn

that in if first two years of president obama's administration there were four times the number of targeted killings than in eight years of president bush's administration. your testimony today that the huge increase in number of lethal strikes has no connection to the change in the obama administration's detention policy? because, obviously, for capturing a terrorist we have the opportunity to interrogate that individual and perhaps learn about ongoing plots. if the strike is done that opportunity is lost. are you saying today, it is totally unconnected to the obama administration's shift in its detainee policy? >> i can say that there is not an occasion that we had the opportunity to capture a terrorist and we didn't and we decided to do a strike. there is no correlation in any type of the c.i.a.'s interrogation program. if you look at the last four years what happened in a number of places, such as yemen eastern areas, there was a growth of al qaeda, quite unfortunately. what we tried to do in this administration is to take every measure to protect the lives of american citizens whether
as for the obama administration going forward. >> the clip tons established a standard for full disclosure. it caused them a few headaches when people found out who was contributing to the clinton foundation. once that was done the nomination proceeded. that's the precedent we're dealing with here. >> chuck hagel gave a lot of speeches, joel. he will not disclose the source of that funding. they were overseas -- involved in an investment bank or private equity operation in nebraska, did a lot of foreign funding. chuck hagel was engaged in that stuff. he is not going to tell. you remember many years ago after the horrible 9/11, they had a commission. they wanted henry kissinger to run that commission. not even full time. he refused to disclose his foreign funding sources and clients. so i got to believe that hagel won't. >> that's right, of course kissinger got into a lot of trouble there and had to pull out. hare reid said at the time what are they hiding? the kissinger folks and the bush administration. that's the same question that hagel is facing now. i think the real question is the lo
. one of the questions people often ask about the first year of the obama administration. why did you take on health care at the same time we're having all these other issues? the reason was health care is not just a huge moral, social issue also an economic issue. we have to deal with that is something that can be helpful for the economy going forward. if you ask, what is the positive on health care? how is the economy doing? what is the snerkt the economy that is adding jobs? it is the health care sector of the economy. i think it is -- that's partly because it is a dynamic sector coming up with incredible innovations, the amount of exciting discoveries that are looming on the horizon are bigger in health care than other parts of the economy. that's the positive. the hard side is it is a complicated side. the reason why we don't leave health care to the private sector because it is complicated. we don't look at someone on the street and say sorry you don't have insurance so too bad for you. we as society is going to take care of that person. that is what puts the government in this
is an example of a regulation that the obama administration has promised a did that is a ridiculous drag on growth? >> think about cycle times of the fda. think about the fact that it takes 12 years to get a power line permitted across state lines. i could give you -- read the reports. we spelled out a number of them. every permit should be approved in less than 24 months. there are jobs there. i guarantee it. there is no excuse for anybody not to have a short cycle time. >> you say that to obama. what does he say? >> he stepped in on the jobs council and said we will shorten this one. there are 28 permits that the president stepped in and said, bank, here we go. -- bang, here we go. one may say the entire epa needs to be reformed. he says, i am not quite there yet. in some specific -- a lot of action. and others -- there is a lot more to do. i would not listen to jeffrey immelt. i would benchmark us compared to others moving ahead. when i am in africa selling locomotives, i am not competing against any u.s. company. i am competing against global players. regulation is a good thing to wo
, which was his administration's idea. president obama showing no sign of regret or even irony nor any sign that his refusal to support a legally mandated budget by yesterday's deadline would have tempered, if not resolved the entire fiscal mess. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry with our report. >> warning the nation's economic recovery is in the balance, president obama pled with congress to a stop a series of massive spending cuts come barging into instead come up with a short-term come up of lesser spending cuts plus tax increases beyond what he signed at the end of december. >> if they can't get a bigger package done by the time the sequester is scheduled to go into effect, then i believe that they should at least pass a smaller package. >> the president said this request to put hundreds of thousands of jobs in jeopardy from classrooms to the pentagon and defense contractors like lockheed martin which today announced hundreds of layoffs. mr. obama said damage can be stopped if only republicans will instead accept the white house final offer from last december, mean
, the obama administration passed an executive order making carbon a pollutant, therefore allowing the epa to pursue additional regulations that the law itself did not allow them to pursue because congress refused to act. there is a balance, and i hopelessly agrees, between environmental protection and economic growth, recovery, stimulation. that's what we're trying to find right now. we need to make sure we liberate the energy sector as we learn from a series of reports that have the potential to create over a million jobs in the next three years alone if properly allowed through government regulation, not overregulation, to start doing more drilling, to start exploring more energy sources. natural gas which we have an abundance of here in the united states, and we see state by state, shannon, the number of unemployed people in states like north dakota a and ohio and texs are going down in large part because of energy production and energy exploration and states like california where leslie sits have horrendous unemployment, anemic growth, much like the rest of the country. >> shannon: le

it on to a consumer, but the proposal does not make it go away. it leaves the obama administration open to the criticism. if you own a business and don't want to provide coverage to women because of the law saying they are titled to it, they cannot be eligible. >> we're haven't heard from the groups. they are registering disappointment. could this once again go to the nation's highest court. >> this is almost certainly going to go to the nation's highest court. the real story is there three different rule changes. all of them on friday to minimize attention to it. the administration knows this is a battle to end up in the stream court. all the technicalities don't change the fundaments. they are shoring up the legal standing to get enough votes at the supreme court to be able to uphold the entire contra accepting mandate and an official that this is more about a legal maneuver than a desire to assuage real concerns on the part of religious leaders. >> this is what they write. the white house decision ought to be taken by the nation's bishops as a victory because it is. they include the
decisions over the economy. >> it has nothing to do with the obama administration. the problems of the post office go back way before president obama existed. the reality is it's an inefficient organization that has to answer to the government to make decisions. the problem is people aren't using the post office. >> let me make a quick point. first of all it's not inefficient. >> you're right. i don't mean inefficient. >> i know what you mean. 50 cents you can send a letter wherever in the universe. >> that part is efficient. you're right. >> i want to make a supporting argument here. i disagree that it is sentimental. there is a famous video of claire mchaskill longing for the days of getting mail. >> the senator? what's the story with her? >> jon stewart ripped her to shreds. >> the point that's valid is we are big city folk. in the smaller, rural parts of the country and you can speak to the congressmen representing the districts the post office is the central meeting place. i have never been to these places. there is something going on there. i respect that. >> if you go on a listening
in on regular conference calls with the white house. they're among the leaders the obama administration is turning to for advice on everything from the deficit to taxes to the broader economy. >>> then, after we talk to them, they're going to paint a picture for us, we're going to turn to two powerful investors for insight into what the conversation in washington means for the broader markets. cowen and company ceo jeff solomon will join us, and the bond king, bill gross. first, steve will bring us up to speed on the morning's top stories. steve? >> thank you, michelle. disney posting better than expected earnings and revenues after the bell. the company says it expects the next few quarters to be better on a stronger lineup of films and growing attendance at its theme parks. ceo bob iegory was on cnbc's "closing bell." >> you had a lot of ins and outs. basically, the trendser good. we had strong results at our domestic parks. the bookings have been pretty solid. advertising was okay. and generally speaking, our business performed well. and our interactive media group was profitable for
years of president obama's administration there were four times the number of targeted killings than in eight years of president bush's administration. your testimony today that the huge increase in number of lethal strikes has no connection to the change in the obama administration's detention policy? because, obviously, for capturing a terrorist we have the opportunity to interinvestigate that individual and perhaps learn about ongoing plots. if the strike is done that opportunity is lost. are you saying today, it is totally unconnected to the obama administration's shift in its detainee policy? >> i can say that there is not an occasion that we had the opportunity to capture a terrorist and we didn't and we decided to do a strike. there is no correlation in any type of the c.i.a.'s interrogation program. if you look at the last four years what happened in a number of places, such as yemen eastern areas, there was a growth of al qaeda, quite unfortunately. what we tried to do in this administration is to take every measure to protect the lives of american citizens whether it is abr
in the bush administration, rosa brooks, former assistant secretary of defense in the obama administration, pretty perfect, guys. rose sa, i want to start with you on this issue of language and what this country calls a terror attack and what it doesn't. obviously it appears after benghazi it was not as clear as it was today. i wanted to play an exchange that happened between state department folks person victoria nuland and a reporter a week after the attack on the american consulate in benghazi. >> does the united states government regard what happened in benghazi as an act of terror? >> again, i'm not going to put labels on this until we have a complete investigation. okay? >> you don't regard it as an act of terrorism? >> i don't think we know enough. >> all right, heroes sa is what jay carney said today about the attack in turkey. >> a suicide bombing on the perimeter of an embassy is by definition an act of terror, it as terrorist attack. >> it seems like that's a pretty direct reaction to the controversy about ben gauzy. >> i think that's absolutely right, erin. i think no one ever
, you know there is that lacking as critics are pointing out under the obama administration when it comes to drone strikes, jeff toobin, if this were to be a george w. bush administration or republican administration, would the reaction be different? >> think about how outraged democrats have been for years about guantanamo, the treatment of the detainees there, the fact they have been kept there at all, torture, of course, as you mentioned. this is life and death. forget keeping you in a nasty cell in guantanamo. this is killing people intentionally and the obama administration thinks that's just fine under these circumstances. the same people who were so mad about what president bush was doing. >> this is not going anywhere. jeff toobin, thank you. tom juneau, thank you, both, very much. >> thanks for having me. >>> and this one today, olympic skier lindsey vonn took a frightening tumble in this championship race in europe. and then she caught a ride, look at this, from a helicopter. talk about dramatic. here she goes to safety. lindsey vonn, the face of women's skiing, danglin
of the economy. one of the questions people often ask about the first year the obama administration why did you take on health care at the same time we were having the other issues. i think precisely the reason was health care is not just a huge moral, social, you know, all -- technological issue. it's an economic issue. it was one of those we thought by helping to deal with that is something that can be helpful for the economy going forward. you asked how can it, you know, -- what is a positive on health care? you asked how is the economy doing. what is the sector in the economy that is growing and adding jobs through the whole recession? it's the health care sector of the economy. i think it's, you know, and that i think partly because of the i dynamic sector coming up with incredible innovations. the amount of, you know, exciting discoveries that are looming on the horizon, i think are perhaps bigger in health care than in, you know, the many part of the economy. so that's the positive. the hard side is it's a complicated side. precisely the reason we don't leave health care to the private s
last month and it's not a widely recorded story the obama administration asked the decided once again to change the product and change the name. so they decided in mid-january that they didn't want to call it health exchanges but they would now have what we call health marketplaces, marketplaces without our kit perhaps. the official explanation for this was that it was because the word exchange could not he translated into the spanish language and for the billions -- millions under the exchange they want to know what it meant, and health exchange or a health marketplace. i want to be helpful in this regard so we can at least try to provide sufficient terms for the beginning of the obamacare dictionary. it was mixture and exchange and of course now it's called an insurance marketplace. there are some other terms in law. a new suggestion translated into the spanish and i won't include my bad accent but that's a new term for it under the affordable care act, donation. another term in the law, mandate. that has been translated new and improved for hispanic and the fisheries, suggestion. w
